, February 25, 2011
This pen is comfortable to hold and joy to use. I have used it everyday since I
received it and I have not been disappointed a single time. I write with a
plethora of fountain pens that range from disposables to antiques and this
particular one is second only to my Lamy Safari. You will not be disappointed in
the purchase of this pen. Bold, blue ink with smooth flow. I can't write enough
good things about this pen!

Mushy tip that scratches and sprays ink when I write, even with a light touch.
Also got ink all over my fingers somehow. Maybe a defective pen? I wonder since
everyone else seems to love this pen. I threw mine away!

I have used the Tradio for years. The first ones I bought in Asia, but I have
been buying them from Jet for at least five years so I am surprised to see it
bein hyped as finally available in the US. These pens are great. I agree with
one review that when they first come out of the box they might be a bit
scratchy, but within a few sentences, the tip will wear the burr off and then
you get a smooth, clean, fountain pen experience for a great price. I have had
trouble with a few refills that leak where the nib meets the pen body. That is
what prompted three stars instead of five. If they could solve this, it would
be excellent. I dont like coming away from a meeting with a blue stain on my
middle finger. I have solved it myself in the past with a wrap of tape at the
seem between the nib and body.

For many years, this has been my all time favorite pen but for a while I
couldn't find it anywhere......until I landed on JetPens.com. Waaaawhoooo!!!
For newbies, it may take some getting used to though. You can hold the pen at
different angles to get different line thicknesses. I've found some folks have
trouble getting used to that. But that's exactly why I like the pen!!!
For me, it's way better for every day use than a true fountain. I think of this
more as a calligraphy pen. It's pure awesome in my book! Plus I like that I
can get a refill and don't have to buy the entire pen every time.
I've got my other fountain pen junkies addicted to this one too. Trust me and

The last time I used...
This review is from Pentel Tradio Stylo Fountain Pen - Black Body - Black Ink
, August 23, 2011
The last time I used these pens was in college over twenty five years ago. I
bought them in the college bookstore until they ran out of stock, and I haven't
seen them since. The plastic 180 degree nib takes a little getting used to, but
once you get the hang of it you will wish you had bought a box of the refills.
Like I said, I used them to take notes in college, and when they were gone,
there was no way to replace them. Until now. Thanks, JetPens!
